Our mobile veterinarians

We make full-service veterinary house calls serving Connecticut, Maryland, Washington, DC, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. Our doctors provide veterinary care for your healthy and sick companions, including vaccinations, blood work, diagnostics and lab tests; right in your home. For x-rays, surgery or hospitalization, we are affiliated with various local hospitals.

Our doctors' house calls last an average of 45 minutes so that they can provide personalized care for the pets and have time for in-depth discussions with the clients. Our clients avoid the inconvenience of a veterinary office visit and exposing their animals to undue stress. We are truly The Less-Stress Vets.
